Three years ago, May of 2009, I wrote this blog entry:
The older we get the more our conversations are about our health. I have
always enjoyed great health and felt pretty invincible until lately.
I am now a hobbler. Yesterday I went to the Bone and Joint doctor and saw
myself surrounded by lots of other hobblers. My right knee was x-rayed and had an MRI
and will return for the verdict on the 21st. The doctor assured me that he could
fix me right back into normalcy. I hope. Besides the pain, this puts me off most
of everything that I like to do. Gardening is impossible without getting on my
knees, using a shovel or even just walking about inspecting new growth. Standing
at my quilting worktable hurts too. Even shopping hurts. Pooh.
Now here we are in 2012 and I am seeing the same surgeon on Thursday. I hurt my left knee doing excessive showing off at Jazzercise and had to quit while I recovered from that pain. I thought my knee was fine but then in September I tried to step up onto a too-high place and pulled everything out of whack. I thought I could heal myself again, but it isn't working. Not only is my knee in pain, but because I am also hobbling, the hips are getting misused and that brings misery.
So I am not quilting or painting or gardening and I just sit all day and knit.
I like the knitting part. But that doesn't give me much to blog about. Again, pooh!
